Maybe someday, in the not-so-distant future, Eli Manning will embrace one of the great benefits of retirement as a NFL player: The ability to say whatever the hell he wants, whenever the hell he wants.
But, alas, he is not there yet. So while two of his best pals, enjoying their lives in the TV studio and on the golf course, can say what they’re thinking that the Giants have wasted the prime of the quarterback’s career Manning respectfully disagreed in his typically diplomatic way.
If the arbitrator rules the testimony would be justifiable, that would open the door for Kaepernick’s attorneys to seek the subpoenas in a district court under the Federal Arbitration Act.

Hageman was a 2014 second-round pick of the Falcons, who released him shortly after he was arrested on domestic violence charges in August 2017. Hageman was suspended six games by the league and served the ban while a free agent last year.
Hageman worked out for the Patriots in May, but has not had any other links to teams this offseason.
There aren’t a lot of college players who didn’t play on the edge primarily who end up doing that in the NFL, so there’s no way for us to tell if Thomas’ development should kick up this year.
The Seattle Seahawks have struggled to run the ball, particularly in the red zone, since Marshawn Lynch left town. While the Seahawks added first-round running back Rashaad Penny, that does not mean their woes have been solved.
